Old Glamorgan Birds

The RFF pictures were mine. Found the perched one but could not do any better with it than Joek. Could not locate the flight shot.

2 Slides I have found show Grey Phalarope on Lisvane res. after the big blow in the early 80's and the party of Whoopers which regularly wintered at Kenfig in the 70's.

Not too good but they were not great slides in the first place.

Autumn ( in anticipation)

Apparently it has been a bumper year for Pallas's Sandgrouse in Kasakhstan. Maybe one in the UK this year ?
